Paradise Grilling Systems of Ocoee, Fla., is recalling about 18,000 Paradise Grills first generation outdoor kitchens

Liquid propane (LP) gas can accumulate inside the closed lid and cabinets, causing an explosion when the user relights the grill, posing fire and burn hazards.

The firm has received two reports of the grill exploding, causing severe burns to the consumers.

This recall involves First Generation Paradise Grills Outdoor Kitchens.

They can have cabinets, sinks, refrigerators, and other features such as LED lighting, Tiki Huts, commercial grills, granite and other additional options.

The recalled models are the GX-3, GX-4, GX-5, GX-6, GX-7, GX-8, GX-9, GX-10, GX-11 GX12 and GX14, Tahiti, Fiji, Tropicana, Aruba 6 and Aruba 8.

The model name is listed on the sales agreement.

The outdoor kitchens, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at Paradise Grills showrooms and at home, boat and RV shows nationwide from January 2009, through December 2020, for between $4,000 and $15,000.
